    Glitter ash was smeared on foreheads of LGBT supporters this Ash Wednesday to show support for their lifestyle in conflict with traditional Catholic teachings of denial of the self in wait for the coming Resurrection of Our Lord on Easter. WikiLeaks are revealing a concerted effort to infiltrate and significantly change the direction of the Church by NWO globalists seeking a Catholic Spring. According to one reported quote, "There needs to be a Catholic Spring in which Catholics themselves demand the end of a Middle Ages dictatorship and the beginning of a little democracy and gender equality." In short, no...

    Add another chapter to the ongoing star war between President Trump and Arnold Schwarzenegger. By way of dimly-lit video shot from an urban waterfront, Schwarzenegger mocked the president’s low approval ratings via Twitter on Tuesday. The former California governor and actor was not above tossing a few barbs in the president’s direction. “Donald, the ratings are in, and you got swamped,” said Schwarzenegger, a Republican but not a Trump supporter. “Wow. Now you’re in the 30s?”
  • The Most Dangerous Addiction of Them All: Entitlements

    All addictions -- whether to drugs, alcohol, gambling, sex or cigarettes -- are very hard to escape. There is one addiction, however, that may be more difficult than any other to escape, in part because it is not even regarded as an addiction. It is entitlements addiction, the addiction to getting something for nothing. One indication as to the power of entitlements addiction is the fact that while great numbers of people have voluntarily given up drugs, alcohol, gambling, etc. -- almost always at great pain -- few give up an addiction to entitlements. For the majority of able-bodied people...

    A major issue of concern in today’s world involves the effect liberals have when they demand everyone conform to their opinions. As a teenager, in my particular social circle there exists rather a diverse world of ideas about politics, religion and countless other “socially inappropriate” subjects of discussion. And regardless of the particular opinions offered by my peers on these issues, I often observe how willingly people change their viewpoints in order to avoid being harshly judged for holding a less than popular—that is, less than acceptable-- belief. Growing up in such an environment has become a major source of...

    The modern West’s freefall into the abyss of feelings, entertainment, mindlessness, lawlessness, and thoughtless immoral behavior was largely learned in the academic halls of the 1800’s, with the lion’s share of such attitudes coming out of Germany that fostered an unwarranted amount of skepticism toward the historical truths of the Bible. In particular, the German Enlightenment disregarded the Jewish foundations of the Bible. They sought to separate biblical history from both Jews and Christians because they saw the Bible not only as too superstitious with too many miracles, but also and closely connected, as too limiting, exclusionary, and particularistic ....

Howard Schultz, the current CEO of Starbucks, is weeks away from stepping down from his role at the giant coffee chain next month.

Her claims came on Twitter and follow a number of racially charged tweets that Witt has authored.

Watson issued on Wednesday his own nationwide ban against Trump’s plan to stem migration from specific war zones. The president’s aim is to beef up the vetting...

    Dostoyevsky’s “The Demons,” one of the finest political novels ever written, tells the story of Stepan Verkhovensky: an amiable, if faintly ridiculous, scholar idling in the provinces of Russia. As a young man, Stepan flirted with the liberal ideas of his day, publishing an article in a “progressive journal” and aiding in a translation of the socialist Charles Fourier. He even grew convinced for a time that the government was watching him closely (and grows very annoyed to find out that they do not care the least bit about him). Evidently allured by the chicness of radical ideas, Stepan is...

    I recently attended a meeting that many would consider anachronistic: Standards Night, an annual gathering for Mormon youth and their parents encouraging chaste and porn-free living. Some call this ritual and others like it nothing more than a chance to shame and stigmatize normal adolescent behavior. Admittedly, the baby (teaching moral standards) has sometimes been immersed in bathwater (messaging that leaves kids guilt-ridden and hopeless about measuring up). Many a memoir or critically acclaimed novel covers this coming-of-age territory well. But this Standards Night—as I imagine similar gatherings play out, in Evangelical or Catholic circles—acknowledged the likelihood that some...

    Trump did not cause the deep division in the country. It caused him. There are two very different Americas. I suspect that the half of the country that voted for Trump, that voted with wild enthusiasm, that roared at huge rallies, was not so much voting for Trump as against the other America. It was just that they had never had a chance before. The two countries have little in common and do not belong on the same geography. Whether Trump proves to be the catastrophic buffoon he apparently aspires to be, the current protests illuminate a stark difference between...

Sure, there are liberals out there who lead decent lives and you can find some on the other side who don’t. Difference is, though, the longer a liberal remains liberal, the harder it is for them to see the light...the truth…that all their ideology does is cover them with a cloak of morality.

    Perpetually raging about the world's injustices? You're probably overcompensating. people publicly rage about perceived injustices that don't affect them personally, we tend to assume this expression is rooted in altruism—a "disinterested and selfless concern for the well-being of others." But new research suggests that professing such third-party concern—what social scientists refer to as "moral outrage"—is often a function of self-interest, wielded to assuage feelings of personal culpability for societal harms or reinforce (to the self and others) one's own status as a Very Good Person. Outrage expressed "on behalf of the victim of [a perceived] moral violation" is often thought...

    Many biologists avoid the term “race” and prefer a phrase such as “continental ancestry.” Thus, to prefer one “race” over another, or to declare one “race” superior to another, is biologically ignorant. Or, put another way, the “racists”—or “race-baiters”—of any era, of any color, on any continent, who battled against the cause of human rights of those of another skin color are guilty of contradicting the laws of basic human biology. Likewise, those who fight to further the cause of the gender-confused (“transgenders”) are also guilty of contradicting the laws of basic human biology. Only in a world corrupted by...

(chuckles) I mean, I’m sure he knows that he’s got opposition. Don’t misunderstand me, now. And I’m sure that he may have had his eyes opened about some of these people. In his mind, they’re Democrats. Liberal, conservative, that’s not in his lexicon, folks. I’m not offering this as a criticism. It’s just a truth. It’s something that, if you want to understand Trump, then there’s no better deconstructor of...

    BURLINGTON, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) – A court date Friday for a Harwinton woman accused of trying to hit a police officer with her car Thursday in Burlington. State police say 58-year-old Eileen Pierce tried to hit an officer directing traffic at a tree-trimming site on Route 69– allegedly driving her Subaru wagon directly at him, yelling out the window, and shaking her fist. The officer quickly got out of the way, and police say Pierce narrowly missed hitting a tree crew. When Pierce was pulled over at the Burlington-Bristol line, troopers say she rambled for several minutes, saying she was...
  • Why Progressive Christians Are Ineffective and Unpersuasive

    One of the most fascinating speeches in the Bible happens in Acts 5, with Jewish Pharisee Gamaliel addressing the Sanhedrin. He warns them that if the message being preached by the Apostles of Jesus were of man, it would fail. But if it is from God, it can't be stopped. It was of God, and it wasn't stopped. I find that passage particularly relevant today within American Christendom. There is a reason why liberal Christian movements like those championed by Jim Wallis, Rachel Held Evans, Shane Claiborne, and others are so ineffective and unpersuasive in American culture. Rather than seeking...

    Some legislators think Nevada women are cheap dates. Consider a recent proposal from Assemblywoman Sandra Jauregui, D-Las Vegas, and Sen. Yvanna Cancela, D-Las Vegas, to eliminate the 8.15 percent sales tax on feminine hygiene products. Around the country, liberals are on a crusade to eliminate the “pink tax,” the higher prices women supposedly pay for products. Jauregui claims that by assessing a tax on tampons, “Our state government doesn’t view feminine hygiene products as a necessity.” This is ludicrous. State government has no opinion on feminine hygiene products. Tampons are taxed because Nevada has a sales tax.

    A poll released Tuesday found Canadians disenchanted with liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, whose approval ratings have fallen to their lowest since he assumed the nation’s highest office. The Forum Poll™, a public opinion firm, released their numbers while Trudeau was visiting western Calgary. Having called for “phasing out” oil sands from the nation’s economy, Calgarians greeted Trudeau with loud boos and, in some instances, barely managed to let Trudeau answer their barbed questions. Forum found that 48 percent of Canadians approve of the job Trudeau is doing as Prime Minister, the first time his approval has crossed the 50...

    "No one really listens or believes reporters anymore…low credibility and high bias have ruined the profession," says Rob in the comment section after a web piece on the "Sycophantic White House Press Corps." Obama's final press conference displayed the usual left wing bias complete with the familiar, slobbering adoration of the outgoing president. By contrast, President Trump met with cringe inducing screams, yelling, rude and disrespectful behavior at his first, pre-inauguration press conference in Trump Tower. A rather cursory search of Wikipedia reveals that, of the recent election campaign's presidential debate moderators, not one presented an advanced academic journalism degree,...

    The following piece appeared on the Coach is Right website in August of 2014. Two years and one presidential election later, Coach Collins’ prophetic observation that, “Together we are much more powerful than Hollywood,” has been proved correct. By Kevin “Coach” Collins Hollywood’s enemies of American freedom are busy undermining the life we have built and hope to keep. These social parasites, who have the wherewithal to live anywhere after they complete the destruction of America, are opening their checkbooks to the Democrats who will carry out the end game for America if we let them. People like Leonardo DiCaprio,...

    Those of you who’ve read Todd Gitlin’s fantastic account of ’60s Era political activism are well aware of the New Left’s descent into chaos, infighting, and terrorism during the course of that decade. However, I’m not sure how many of you realize just how much destruction the sectarian left inflicted upon our society during the 1960s and the ensuring decade. That’s why this blog post, which explores another book about this tumultuous chapter in American history, is so fascinating. Although I’m not sure I agree that we are on the same trajectory as the baby boomers, there are some unsettling...

    While speaking at the Women's March in Washington, D.C. this morning, liberal documentary filmmaker Michael Moore addressed the crowd and gave them some advice for what they should do when it comes to the Democratic Party in the future. "We have to take over the Democratic Party," Moore exclaimed. [Snip] The Roger and Me auteur railed against the "old guard" of the Democratic Party and said that the party needed more people of color and those in the LGBT community to run for office and take positions of leadership.
